Re: Coronavirus

There's so much research going on. particularly at existing vaccines. There is some evidence (but so far, not enough to be conclusive) that those vaccinated with the BCG (tuberculosis) vaccine have a higher survival rate when they get coronavirus. Now, they are also looking at the polio vaccine to ...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Little bit cool today, but just lovely in the sunshine! I went for a 45 minute walk, and had a (socially distanced) chat with a neighbour. It really made me feel better. Saturday was a very hard day. The weather was chilly, dark and damp, my motivation and mood were very low. Thankfully, that doesn'...

Re: Daytime fox hanging around

Thanks, Margaid. The purrfect fence actually looks like something I'd love to have for my two special needs cats, who can't be allowed out at all! I might think about that extension system - or a cheaper, Home made version, for the chicken pen. It's something I could work on bit by bit. **Starts sav...

Daytime fox hanging around

Several times now, I've had a very cheeky fox out on the lawn by my back door, any time from mid morning to afternoon. Grubbing holes in the lawn. My hens are in a large pen (approx 70×45 ft), with a galvanised chain link fence. However, the fence is only around 5ft. I know zero about electric fenci...

Re: Coronavirus

I may have to do more shopping by car which is a shame, because I suffer from hay fever and often sneeze. The car will keep me out of the pollen. It's the WHO advice not to wear a mask if you're healthy and not exposed to other people (as bus drivers, shop assistants etc are). The reason being it h...

Re: Coronavirus

Very interesting Marigold and completely logical. Whenever we watch clips on TV from other countries they all seem to be wearing masks. And yet we are told it’s unnecessary. Seems strange. Singapore, who were as prepared for this as it was possible to be, given that it was not their first deadly ep...

Re: Coronavirus

It's about as much use as a valved mask that hasn't been fitted properly... Every time I see someone wearing a mask incorrectly I think of a nurse or doctor who could've had that mask and not wasted it... Grrr! My bugbear is seeing people, on their own, in their car, driving along wearing a mask!

Re: Coronavirus

I believe my own eyes, like the walking group turning up at Lakeside this morning, to rendezvous with a minibus to take them somewhere for a ramble I went and got the police to disperse them. Plus I had them coming over to me, asking if I was the driver, did I know where the minibus was. Plus the r...

Re: Reasons to be cheerful

Was chilly, windy and lashing rain here all day. Well, not all day. It was fine enough this morning that I diligently watered all my vegetable beds! Wasn't five minutes back in the house, when it started raining! Well played, weather. Well played! :-)08 :-)08 I did some sewing that I've been meaning...
